Overview

The relationship between nationalism and religion has often been characterized by antagonisms and antipathy. In this anthology, scholars from Israel and the United States examine various perspectives - history, sociology, theology, law, political science - the complex nexus within Judaism of these two sources of repeated ideological and political dispute.

The collection demonstrates that "the permutations in the dynamic interaction between nationalism and religion are not confined solely to the plane of historical events, but are also evident in society and the intellectual sphere."
